Collecting free money

Edit: SlotMasters has changed their business model, so much of this article is no longer relevant. I hope you collected your free money while it lasted!

Last week I posted about three apps I have been using, one to make you smarter, one to make you money, and one to make you better at poker. The apps to make you smarter and better are poker were obvious.

Read more books and get smarter. Yep, that makes sense.

Study common poker situations and memorize the GTO play. That also makes sense.

But play a slot app to make money? Has Jonathan lost his mind? …

Combating a Maniac

3534The following hand is from one of my newest books, Jonathan Little on Live No-Limit Cash Games, Volume 2, The Practice. This book is a collection of 105 in-depth hand quizzes that I played at $10/$20 and $20/$40 No-Limit at the Commerce Casino. My students have told me this is one of  my best work to date. If you haven’t check it out already, I suggest you do so. Would you have played this hand the same way I did? What do you think about this quiz format? Let me know!

Studying poker with ICMizer

icmizer-pokerWhen I first started playing poker, I would spend 6 hours per day grinding sit n’ go’s and 4 hours reviewing my hands using a now-defunct program called Sit N’ Go Power Tools. Eventually I moved to multi-table tournaments and stopped studying push-fold situations because I thought I knew them perfectly.

While watching the 2015 WSOP Main Event  (I review 31 hands from the final table here),  I saw someone call an all-in in a situation where I thought it could easily be bad. I knew ICMizer was the go-to final table push-fold authority, so I downloaded the program and saw that the player in question should call or fold based almost entirely on the payout structure. …

Fun hand from a $1/$2 live cash game

cash 1I was asked by a large number of my students to get some experience playing the small stakes live games so I could make a training product to help them crush those specific games. I did exactly that, and Strategies for Beating Small Stakes Cash Games was born. I owe a huge amount of thanks to everyone who inspired me to make this book! Thank you for making it the #1 Best-Selling Poker book on Amazon!

Today I am going to share a hand with you from a $1/$2 live cash game at Borgata, in Atlantic City. My table will populated with mostly 50-70 year old recreational players who liked to limp with almost their entire range of playable hands. When someone raised, it was usually to 6 big blinds, which typically resulted in everyone folding. Talk about a great game! …
